Moving to a consistent structure would:

   Make writing binary tools easier - skipping the expensive
   export/munge/import process

   Make displaying data collected by multiple platforms
   and accessed via (nfs, rsync, whatever) easier and allow
   a unified front end for end users.  This point would be
   applicable both in large scale operations, and in operations
   where you're forced to work with multiple platforms.
   (Or you  are trying to migrate from one to another on a
   medium number of machines).
